Told by Johana, the founder
Kids Aware was born out of my observations and talks with children, parents and educators around the world. In my trips to 29 countries, I observed how many children and youth are no longer able to focus and to be present. Rather, many were distracted by modern digital technologies, such as the Internet, iPads, smartphones, videogames and other devices. If deprived from their devices, many kids became angry, sad, anxious or frustrated. Further, my scientific research made me understand the consequences of using these technologies.
In moderation and when used at the right age and time, they can enhance children’s knowledge and skills. In excess or at the wrong time or age, they can be very damaging for children’s development and future, hijacking their time and attention, impacting their well-being.
In a digital age and world, we all know that sometimes it can challenging to guide and educate kids about the potential dangers technology brings. Therefore, Kids Aware is committed to ease the load off your shoulders and help you co-create a brighter, balanced future for children and coming generations.
